Studio One Ironsides (Original Classic Recordings 1963-1979)
Record New / Cover New
This new instalment features many classic Studio One cuts alongside a heavy dose of superb rarities and spans all eras - everything from classic ska and rocksteady to the deepest roots, heaviest dub and dancehall roots. Studio One Ironsides refers back to a time in the 1960s and 1970s when Clement Dodd was at the height of his powers, releasing so much amazing music that Studio One had to invent new label names to trick radio DJs, wary of playing too much music from the legendary studio, into playing records. These creatively titled new label names included Ironsides, Money Disc, ND Records, BongoMan, Forward and more.
